Following the video evidence surrounding the violence attack on multimedia journalist, Mr. Tobi Adepoju, it has been confirmed that the attack was instigated by the Shooting Stars officials.
Chairman Akoro and GM Dimeji Lawal we can confirm sat just a few meters away from where Mr Tobi was attacked and they gave the directives.
The game had seen two goals, one scored by Sikiru Alimi from the penalty spot for Remo Stars and the other by Emmanuel Lucky via a header for Shooting Stars.
The chaos started when journalists were done with the post match interviews and told by Shooting Stars fans to leave the stadium and eventually slapped and beat multimedia journalist, Tobi Adepoju who was one of the journalists.
According to a journalist who was at the event but only spoke to us on anonymity said it looked like a planned attack on journalists.
“The fans came pointing at him (Tobi) and asked him to leave the stadium, before we knew it he slapped him and other fans joined in and started beating him.”
“He (Tobi) had to run to where the police van was parked for safety.” He concluded.
This was a repeat of the chaos that happened in Ikenne in the reverse fixture when fans of both clubs attacked each other.
